The indoor air quality in your home may be affecting your health and the health of your family members. On average, we spend about 90% of our time indoors and indoor air quality is much worse than outdoor air quality these days. Here are some things you can do to improve the air quality in your home:
- Regular housecleaning including dusting and vacuuming
- Make sure to change your air filters regularly
- If and when possible, open your windows to let fresh air in
- Avoid harsh chemical cleaning products
Carpet cleaning and area rug cleaning
will also help improve indoor air quality. These microscopic, irritating particles land on the soft surfaces of your home. Carpeting and rugs act as a natural air filter so they must be cleaned to keep the allergens at bay.
